At the heart of our struggles and pains are relationships. At the heart of our hopes and dreams are relationships. Whether it is your relationship with anxiety and depression, with your career, with your partner, sister, son, daughter, boss, or parent-everything is about relationships. Therapy helps you tackle some of the most challenging questions we all face. How do we repair what needs to be fixed in our relationships, including the relationship with ourselves? What needs attention, a new perspective, a better skill, or emotional resolve to enable you to become more authentic and improve your connection to self and others?

Life is increasingly busy and complex. Compassionate Brain Life Coaching (CPLC), helps you to press the pause button, slow down and remember and or newly discover who you are. Science tells us that our brains at rest are actually programmed to be happy. But it sure doesn't always feel that way. CBLC equips you with the cognitive and mindfulness tools to counter the self-critic and manage difficult times. I will help you identify, name and validate the places you go under stress, with a view to exploring what works and creating newly, including moving from surviving to thriving.

You may be feeling lonely, frustrated, angry or depressed; or riddled with anxiety, fret, or fear. Wherever you are along your unique journey of suffering, you are welcome here. You may be grieving, weeping, or mourning. Or you may be experiencing one of the many and innumerable ways in which we human beings are vulnerable to adversity; trying to function in a complex and deeply bereft world. Alternatively, you may be experiencing great joy and pleasure and find yourself unable to transcend to your next level of potentiality. You may see the life you want, yet you find yourself idling and dreaming. You feel it's time for support.

Psychotherapy offers emotional and psychological space for change. It is an opportunity to decode what is not working and with therapeutic guidance provide clients with a scaffolding to try out new thinking and ways of feeling. I see psychotherapy as a kind of lab, where clients safely get to try new approaches out, notice what works and what is most effective. My work is about helping clients; whether a problem to be solved, a desired behavioral change, or finding meaning during a life challenging experience. I encourage individuals to contact me and explore that change. I am here to help.

Beginning the journey of self-discovery and healing can be difficult. You may be struggling with a difficult family dynamic, needing support around a sudden loss, or wishing to improve the quality of your relationships. Facing this is truly an act of courage. Individuals have innate qualities and inner strengths that, when nurtured, can help in overcoming these hardships. I provide a safe and supportive environment where you can freely express yourself without judgement.

As a caring & experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully & respond honestly in person or by phone, FaceTime, zoom, Skype. Parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts & insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that cause depression and anxiety. We begin with the formative events in your life & your current issues. By drawing on family systems & psychodynamic principles, I use the latest interpersonal, cognitive & behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approach that leads you toward greater self understanding & positive steps.
